Leaving your job and starting fresh

Leaving your job and starting fresh

We all know this will happen one day….whatever the reason may be. Personally, I left my job to pursue, and hopefully get a career, in higher education, as well as realizing that the job enviroinment I worked in was not suited for me (that does not include my collegues and co-workers who were, and still are, great people).

Depending on your personality, the relationship you had with your collegues, and the circumstances that made you leave, one might decide to sever all ties with the people they worked with. Fine, up to you. But my suggestion is to follow these steps I found from Reuters which I agree with and I personally followed, so good luck to all, و اللّه الموفّق :

NOTE: I added the pictures in this article.

There might be fifty ways to leave your lover, but there are also at least three tips to keep in mind when you are thinking of leaving your job, according to Harvard Business Review.

The Management Tip of the Day offers quick, practical management tips and ideas from Harvard Business Review and HBR.org (http:\www.hbr.org). Any opinions expressed are not endorsed by Reuters.

“If you’re thinking about leaving your job, remember that how you quit can be just as important as where you go next. Here are three tips for gracefully making your departure:

1. Be positive

When you give the news to your boss, avoid ranting and raving. You may feel better but it won’t help your career. If you do have constructive feedback, schedule a separate meeting to discuss it.

2. Find your replacement

Don’t leave your team or manager in the lurch. Do what you can to find someone qualified. Offer to stay on to help that person transition into the position.

3. Keep in touch

Don’t sever all ties with the company, even if you had a bad experience. Former colleagues and managers may be assets to you in the future.”
